One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at (and I've been to quite a few). It had great atmosphere, activities planned for each day and awesome staff. I extended my stay in Playa just because of this place. Would definitely come back!! More

We booked an "apartment" with 2 bedrooms only to find a big room with 2 double bedrooms with a small separator between the beds. The smell of drainage coming out of the shower was horrendous. The receptionist told us that it was a common problem through all of Mexico, however, we More

I have now been to this hotel two years in a row and plan to return again next year. I truly enjoy both families that own and operate this establisment. The families work one month on, one month off. Depending on when you travel will dictate which family you will meet during your stay. More

Great vibe at this hostel. - you pay a little extra than the hostels further back from the beach, but in return ladies have free drinks for an hour every night, the breakfast is amazing and goes for two hours and there is a roof top bar and wading pool with great views! Definitely enjoyed More

One of the best hostel I've stayed at. The staff is amazing, the location is great and it's very clean. The pool is shallow but still very nice. The atmosphere is great and the fact that it's ladies hour EVERYDAY between 10-11 pm is just a big plus. When in playa, stay here! More

Picture of Raquel Ream This was a very chill hostel, with the hammocks in the middle área, and was also extremely close to the beach, and in a good spot to get to everything else. It's very rustic, though, so if you come here, you've got to be More

We only stayed for one night so didn't get a chance to really soak in the atmosphere but there was a nice sun terrace in the inner courtyard with hammocks etc. The location is great as near the main ferry terminal back to playa and in a really nice area for restaurants and bars, a short More

Front desk staff was very friendly. I loved the location which was close to everything I needed. There were only 2 other women in my room so it was very nice. Kitchen facilities and toast & coffee in the mornings were also good. Bathroom was large. More

The staff were very helpful and friendly and it isn't a Party hostel, which is nice, so you can actually sleep at night. The Bathrooms are a bit odd though, No toilet seats and a shower stall where you have to walk through one to get to the other... More

Hostel Quinta Playa was my first stop on my extended trip around Latin America and it left a tough act to follow. The location was very convenient just a block from the Bus station and very close to the beach. But by far my favourite thing about this hostel was the people. I met some More

Cute little hostel in a great location. Damien is very helpful. Internet went down a few times and the bathrooms needed a good scrub, but otherwise we were happy. Basic breakfast, nice atmosphere. We booked 2 nights, stayed 5 and would probably stay here again. Thanks! More

Tres Mundos was a nice laid back hostel. The staff was attentive and they played a variety of music at a reasonable volume. Wifi worked good in the common area. More
